Living the dream!

May 27, 2016

If you ask me how I’m doing and I say “I’m living the dream”, it will be the truth. As of June 6, I will be a FULL-TIME wedding & commercial photographer!!! Up until this time, I have been a part-time photographer while working a full-time corporate job and managing my rental properties. My dream was to build the photography business up to a level where I could make the leap to full-time photographer. The past two years I’ve been taking on as much as I can to build up my own businesses for this purpose. As I had hoped, my business grew. It grew until schedules started colliding, and it was time to make a choice. It was getting increasingly impossible to balance quality family time with multiple career paths (despite my excellent multi-tasking skills:)).

I am not a risk taker, and would not advise someone to quit their job without having a plan in place. It was definitely not an overnight or easy decision to leave my corporate job. This process has been hard, but will be worth it for me and my family! My girls are getting involved in more activities as they will both be at elementary school in the fall. I’m looking forward to having more time to spend with them this summer, as I won’t have to work as many late nights and weekends! During the weekdays, you will find me at my studio in Old Town Helena. I plan to continue to grow my wedding & commercial photography business and manage my real estate company, Barkley Properties.

This is a dream come true for me, but would not have been possible without the overwhelming support and encouragement from countless clients, mentors, co-workers, friends, and family over the years. I am so grateful to you!
